first ever build - i7 920

Recommended Posts

So I decided to get things rolling and document my progress through my first ever build, not to mention my new rig since my one from like 2002 just died and it was going to be more of a hassle to get her working again for shoddy performance.

 

soo... some stuff from the egg came in today... maybe half of what i ordered..

ill post those pics later but first i want to show you guys this...

 

RMA now i am waiting another 10 days so frustrated

Ya it was shipped just like that.. I found on other forums someone else had a similar product and alot of people are calling fake, and thats its a forum hoax. I promise its not, and its even more frustrating seeing people not believing when im already frustrated I cant start my build.

this is how far i got on friday.. ill see what more i can do tomorrow. but basically im waiting for the cpu..

 

connecting all the stuff to the mobo seems like the "scary/hard" part.

 

oh also my DVD drive was OEM.. do you know what cables ill need to pick up, i wassnt able to get anything this weekend yet.

 

Here is my progress so far.. oh the pantyhose was put on the front bezel and side fan (not shown yet) to act as filters.

What did Newegg say when you contacted them? I hope they at least paid for the return shipping - that looks horrible!
